Jericho Road (3:18)

from Some Part of The Truth

At the edge of Jericho Road,
beneath the street light's yellow orange glow.
The feared and the fallen go.
In the way of predator and prey,
no one's spared,
because hate is too great a weight to bear.

In a cage of shadows we meet,
naked and bloodied in the street.
At the mercy, at the feet,
of the way of predator and prey.
No one's spared,
because hate is too great a weight to bear.

    In the darkness on shattered pavement
    the better angels fade.
    Blurred in slumber, murder by numbers.
    Do you know my name?

I believe in you,
because everyone holds some part of the truth.
And now, I'm in your way.
Do we stay on Jericho Road, forever going nowhere,
until hate is too great a weight to bear.
